P1 & 3. First 2 pitches mediocre but top pitch brilliant - worth doing just for that!
Gudge - AltLd O/S - 11/Jul/14 with Neil Davies
P1 & P2 only as my seconder took a swing at the start of P2 and demanded to be lowered off.
P2 is serious but awesome.
Route is in great condition and no peregrine at the Holly Tree.
Go do it!

Great climbing. although not difficult serious in places. sustained interest for every pitch and hold appear when you want them as well as gear (for the most part, each pitch does have serious sections. hence the E1 grade)

Straight up crack on 2nd pitch. Ace route.

I lead first and third. One tiny nut on first pitch which fell out before the belay anyway. Crux pitch good, hard bit safe. Top pitch the best!! Swimming in river after, painful!!!!

1st pitch saturated. Feet shot off with no warning & decked out on my head after RP failed! 2nd rope clipped to chockstone just went tight as I landed. Led it OK on 2nd attempt and andy led next 2 pitches in fine style as I started to feel rather sore by pitch 3. Kids, if you're reading this, Always wear a helmet! AWESOME ROUTE!!

Got all 3 pitches, 1st was wet and felt tricky as gear is minmal on wet holds = worrying, second pitch out left on jugs feels ace and run out.. brilliant. third pitch continues to gve superb but straight forward climbing all the way to the end. Superb route! never too hard, prob only HVS, the 5a moves felt soft.
